Last week sped by but I have a feeling that this week is going to go by much.much.slower. Tuesday was Christmas Eve, Wednesday was Christmas, Thursday we saw Anchorman 2, Friday I spent my afternoon at the salon before friends came over for dinner and the Bull Run Festival of Lights, Saturday we celebrated my BFF’s birthday, yesterday we saw American Hustle… And then in the blink of an eye, it’s already Monday.
I was scheduled to take the VLCA exams this afternoon but considering that I haven’t studied, I postponed the tests (without penalty) until Friday morning. Yesterday evening I outlined grand plans for my week ahead – wake up, eat breakfast, workout, eat lunch, study, snack, study, eat dinner, study, go to sleep, and repeat. With the exception of some fun on New Year’s Eve, obviously.
How did today go? Well, I’ve eaten, worked out, washed all of our laundry, walked Charlie, watched wedding shows… And I have not even begun to study. Gah! I never have been good at studying at home. In elementary school and throughout high school I went to a tutor after school before I went to practice, in college I studied and wrote papers at a local coffee shop, and nowadays I prefer to stay late at the office to finish any work and write blog posts at Starbucks. My brain has coded home to be an anti-work zone.
In an effort to procrastinate even longer, below are some marvelous moments from the past week (a few that didn’t make it into my Christmas recap are also included). A lot of the pictures – especially the ones from the light show since we were instructed not to stop along the route, as well as from Seasons 52 because the room was extremely dark – are oober blurry. Maybe in 2014 I’ll start using one of my fancy cameras?
Thanks Katie for hosting another marvelous link-up!
Question: Does any place near you do a light show? This was my first experience.
Question: Have you ever eaten at Seasons 52? What’s your favorite dish? The menu changes seasonally so we try to go once each season!
